Smell’s source?

POLICE believe they have found a large cannabis farm in Dewsbury.

The find could confirm the suspicion of many in the town who have reported a strong smell of cannabis around the town. This week on the Dewsbury Reporter Facebook page Jason Batley wrote: “The mystery smell was solved last night – cannabis farm found in Mill Street East, right where everyone thought the smell seemed to originate from.”

A West Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said officers had assisted South Yorkshire Police with a pre-planned search of premises in Mill Street East at 3.14pm on Monday

She said: “What is believed to be a large cannabis farm was located, and a number of plants and paraphernalia were seized.”

Kirklees Council had linked the smell to a nearby industrial process.
